About the show

In Nylon Fusion Theatre Company's New York premiere, on the fringes of a remote desert society, a group of teenage dissidents search for fragments of earlier civilizations. More…

From the show:

At the heart of a forgotten society calling itself The Earie, young dissidents use radio telescopes to salvage fragments of earlier civilizations still ricocheting between stars. These 'Listeners' fight against growing pressure from the governing central Council, whose hold over the imaginations of the population of The Earie has all but buried the practice of 'Listening.' As the tone of their world tilts away from discourse and curiosity toward emotional rhetoric and fear-fueled isolationism, the last remaining Listeners strike out wildly against the new reality.

Don't see it if Young Adult Dystopian Sci-fi is not to your liking.

Great writing, Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if Randall Rodriguez creates an amazing scene. It is very thought provoking. The cast works excellent with each other on stage.
